Understanding Obesogens and Their Impact: Essential Info for Every Dietitian (1 CPEU/CEU)
Understanding Obesogens and Their Impact: Essential Info for Every Dietitian  (1 CPEU/CEU)

(On-Demand Webinar.) Don't miss this interview with developmental biologist and researcher Bruce Blumberg, PhD, author of The Obesogen Effect: Why We Eat Less and Exercise More but Still Struggle to Lose Weight (19 CPEU/CEUs). Obesogens disrupt hormonal systems, alter how we create and store fat and change how we respond to dietary choices. Dr Blumberg's research helped identify the first known obesogen many years ago, and he has studied them ever since. We are all at risk for the effects of obesogens: Dr. Blumberg explains why, plus provides advice on how you can help your clients avoid them in this fascinating interview.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this webinar, the learner will be able to:
  • Define an obesogen and its characteristics
  • List five types of potential obesogens
  • Describe the impact of endocrine-disrupting compounds on hormonal action
  • Explain how a toxin can act differently at differing levels of exposure
  • Describe the interplay between epigenetics and obesity and other chronic diseases
  • List three ways you can help clients reduce obesogen exposure
NOTE: We experienced some audio issues during the first few minutes of the webinar. These are minor and resolve after the first 5-7 minutes.
